Smell the flowers!

This little bear (thanks Nikky) has a purple nose!!! Don't know why ... but I'm not complaining cos he goes perfectly with my purple ribbon and purple spotty backing paper!!
The card is self explanatory really so I won't bore you with the details!
Hope you all have a fantastic, sunny weekend xx

Bunnies with pots and spots!

My second attempt at colouring in a stamped image (thanks Jackie). Used pencil crayons and Whisper pens (still can't get my head round water colouring!!!).
Used black card for the base and then ran the coloured card through the cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder, used Romance board for the scalloped edges and finished off with ribbon and a bow.
See you later.

For my Mum and Dad

Don't usually send my Mum and Dad a wedding anniversary card unless it's a special one, but this little bear was floating around on my desk so decided to do something with him before he got lost!!! It's a sticker mounted onto white card and then cut out, used my bug, swiss dots and oval and circle nesties, a new flower punch I bought at the weekend, some little pink pearls and some backing paper from the Forever Friends range (oh and finished off with ribbon and a bow!!!)
Happy Anniversary Mum and Dad xx

On the beach

Made this card for Lynn's challenge on the imag-e-nation forum.
The adorable image is from Joanna Sheens "The Cardmakers Year" and I used the cuttlebug for the distressed stripes background and the printed sentiment.
A very simple card to make really and I thoroughly enjoyed doing it.
Have a nice evening.

Ruby Wedding

Got my light box out for this one and used an Ornare pricking stencil for the corners. I cut the photograph of the rose into three pieces and mounted them onto gold card. Finished it all off with a gold butterfly peel off stuck onto some red mirror card, some gold peel off dots, a couple of red gems and my usual ribbon and bow.
Hope you all had a nice weekend.

Cameron's Christening

Not made a card for a while and then made two at once for the same little boy. I don't like making more than one for the same person ... cos they have to be sooo different.
The first one is made using my bug, swiss dots, oval nesties and an image I got from Nikky (thanks Nikky) and the second one is very very simple just using one of my many Morehead sheets. Oh and before anyone says anything .. I know the apostrophes in the wrong place on the first card but hopefully they won't notice!!!
Hope you all have a nice day.

My Mum's Birthday Card

It's my Mum's birthday tomorrow amd each time I make her a card I find it harder and harder to do something just that bit different from the last one, plus the fact I've to find her a verse that's guaranteed to make her blub ... so all in all it's quite a task .. good job I love her so much!!
I used Fred's Flowers (thanks Tracey ... again), my new label nesties and as I don't have the Martha Stewart Doiley Punch yet (it's on my wish list) ... I improvised and did my own version using my Romance Board and a pricking tool ... doesn't look bad does it?
Have a nice evening everyone and Happy Birthday for tomorrow Mum xx

Blue Pansy

A different layout for me ... I'm getting very adventurous in my old age!!
Just used some lovely blue card I've had for ages, ran some white card through the cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder and oval nesties and finished it off with a die-cut pansy, ribbon, bow and pearls. (This is just for you McLiz!! lol)
Have a nice weekend everyone xx
